Through the library you can watch the film The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (2017) staring Oprah Winfrey.

The CSP Library has a couple copies of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks available for checkout and we have one copy that remains in the library and can be checked out for a few hours at a time if you are doing homework on campus. Ask about the book at the Library Information Desk!
